Eating at The Deck on a very regular basis we have noticed that the quality of the food has decreased over the past 6 months or so. Dined here again last night - I ordered the Rack of Lamb, my husband the Rib Steak ordered...More

Enjoyed the atmosphere - and a few beers after a long sail from Vanuatu. Struggled to finish the massive 1kg steak which was nicely cooked. The service was good in the bar and the restaurant, altogether a pleasant evening enjoyed with friends.

Dined here with the $18.50 lunch special, I had the fish, well cooke, huge serve of chips and salad. My partner had the steak, it was a bit tough, but fine for the price.

We have been to the deck quite a few times now, (when you eat out in Mackay regularly you tend to see the same places fairly often). I love the views, unbeatable in my opinion. But i very often am disappointed in the steaks. Dry,...More

For $40+ a steak you’d expect to be greeted and seated rather than counter service. Steaks were tough, mine was supposed to be a medium rare rib on the bone, when I questioned the “integrity” of the meat I was told “the bone burnt off...More

Because of the order at the counter arrangement the staff don’t feel it necessary to greet and seat you, which is pretty lazy. The steaks are not cheap and come with just the standard chips or baked potato. Not a lot of love on the...More

We ate here twice of the Easter long weekend and both times our meals were brilliant. Gets a little busy on Sundays but went back Monday and found it to be much more quiet. Either way we didn't mind as the venue is superb.

We booked a table for 22 to celebrate a family event over lunch. Well....we couldn’t have chosen a better venue. Lunch was organised to ensure everyone ate at the same time, the meals were presented well and steaks cooked to perfection!! The staff went above...More
